Great cpu if you want to build a nice cheap media pc for the living room, run your own nas, plex etc..
Great little cpu, can do everything, even medium gaming with the right GPU.

Suitable if you don't do anything really heavy.

Get a second hand one for next to nothing from ebay, lots of people dumping these now.

I've bought about half a dozen of these on ebay, facebook & CEX over the past two months, as they're great value, but the cheapest I've managed to pick one up for is £40, with the cooler from ebay, from a guy who was upgrading. Never been able to get them for any less than this. The only place I can source them from reliably for less than this price is Aliexpress, where sans cooler, you can get them for around £30 - but you have the usual issues of potential customs charges, 4 week wait etc.

This price is very good, and I've spent over a thousand quid at CCL this year and they've been fantastic, with great customer service. Also, they're consistently cheaper than Amazon and pay all their taxes, so I know who I prefer buying from.

What mobos do you use with it,i'm quite curious,advice?

Gigabye A320 BOARDS will be decent enough, or get a used B350, B450 boards are fine too the giga DS3H @£65 is one of my faves for any build from this cpu up to 3600X if on budget..
Looking at benchmarks this gives my 3570k a run

A variety of them, based on the price point I'm targeting and whatever's best value at the time :D. If I'm doing the cheapest build I can then it's an a320m I use (usually gigabyte a320m-s2h or h) or a b450. Obviously the b450 (usually gigabyte b450-ds3h) can overclock for about 10-15% better performance, and that would probably be my choice. I've used a few asrocks, but I've had issues with RAM compatibility, APU functionality and just general shonkiness with those (b450m hdv) so I tend to avoid those now. I would probably go back to them, but they used to be around £50-51 at the beginning of the year and are now usually closer to £60, so these extra £5 for the Gigabyte board means I can use cheaper RAM and it'll be a better quality build (IMHO).
40 is a stupid price! Definitely worth getting if you want a budget 1080p pc
Fantasic as an entry level chip, able to play games perfectly well at 60 fps when paired with the correct card.
Good price.

Next to nothing? I just checked and can't find a single unit cheaper than this.
Im replacing my mac mini with a PC build, so I dont need CPU power but I do need very fast storage. So this CPU will do the trick with a B450M board and nvme SSD.
I've got one of these. Great cpu for price. Got mine overclocked to 4.0ghz at 1.3v stable. Cinebench score puts it marginally lower than an i5 7600k
The 8GB RX570 would be a nice sweet card for this CPU, even a RX590 @ £159 would do the trick too, but the price fairness and performance of the rx570 is a steel of a deal.

dont let the usual benchmark websites put u off the RX570.. they clearly reviewd the 4GB when u compare the two GPU's as the gap isnt that massive as they state.
Have some heat Sarden, great effort with advice for people too!
Currently have mine clocked at 3.8ghz with an asrock b350-hdv. With an rx 480 its decent for 1080p gaming
You are better off spending extra bit on a 2200g for not having to buy a discrete gpu.

The 2200g is great for things like fortnite at 720p on mostly low settings. It'll do 60fps all day long with that - especially if you crank the clock up on the CPU & GPU parts, but at best it'll only be around 25-30% of an rx570 in terms of performance, and it'll only maintain 35-45fps at 1080p on that game - and that's one of the more optimised games out there.

Might be worth it if you want to have a cheap CPU + decent gpu combo. But in that case I would say 1600 would be the best choice for budget thanks to 2 more cores and multithreading. I wouldn't recommend buying 1200 unless you really have a very tight budget but want to play big titles 1080p.
Well the 1600 is on here too folks with lots of info.... im not spending your cash, you are, i just like giving peoples lot of info to help them decide, if u can afford a 1600 then yup its gonna offer alot more but for tighter budgets a 1200 is a nice cpu, pc gaming doesnt have to be expensive to enjoy pc gaming!. to many worry about fps n have to spend tons, u dont. it can be done affordable just know ur limits before though and expentations match what u buy, so any cpu / gpu ive given advice on, pop the combo into utube to see first hand what it could do.

On paper, the 1600 looks much better than 1200, but as sarden84 says, in reality most games will run just fine with the 1200. For highly-threaded application then the 1600 clearly makes far more sense. Doing any audio or video rendering will be significantly faster on this part. However, it *is* almost twice the price and sometimes people have a hard limit on what they can spend.

The 1600, now that the AF version is released, is going to be the bargain of the first quarter of 2020 - if they can keep it at this price. AMD are actually cutting off their own noses with the more expensive 2600 part being £30 more expensive now and not commensurately more performant.

Of course not, as you don't know the sales prices of the cpu's people bid for in advance, that's how ebay works.
Be patient and you'll get a desperate seller that will sell it for cheap, have done so quite a few times.

Maybe not now, but Ebay is fed with new stuff every day. Have bought lots of computer components throughout the last few years. You'll always get a desperate seller that wants the cash quick, same with these.
If people say 'open to offers' do you know in advance what they'll take ? No, you don't. So if they want 47 now, you'll definitely get it below 40.

Thanks for the responses,here is another one for you, i know you can't overclock on an A chipset but can you underclock, or is it locked completely ?

I've never tried underclocking it, some I'm afraid I can't answer that.
@sarden84

Are there any cheaper GPU’s available which you would recommend?

I only really play Footy Manager these days which isn’t too demanding, so don’t really think spending £100 on a gfx card is necessary.

Your comment made it appear that Ebay was currently flooded with these things. Your new comment states "If you mess about for long enough, some guy may come along who has one listed on a desperate three day auction which you may win cheap if you are very lucky."

I stand by my comment. Stop misleading people.
This is a good price and basically negates the entire second hand 2nd - 7th gen locked i5 market (the staple of budget gaming) at this price point. Add a gigabyte a320 motherboard (clearance) and 8gb 3000mhz Adata Gammix RAM @ CCL for £112 delivered (free delivery option)
Edited by: "Screamopilla" 28th Dec 2019
Good price.
I would suggest £54 budget motherboard ASRock B450M-HDV for gaming.
I overclocked Ryzen 5 1400, from 3.2 to 3.8gHz, with Asrock tuning utility software by simply moving a slider.
Edited by: "sonofsouth" 28th Dec 2019
Been running a Ryzen 1200 for a couple of months paired with an MSI 1050 on an Asus 450 Prime board.

Seems to play any games at 1080 without any trouble at all.

Was very lucky to pick up a build bundle on Facebook for £100 including CPU, motherboard and ram.

You would be really unlucky with a single purchase that small. Reading through the reviews I've not seen one person from the uk complain about being hit with import tax, except for people buying multiple items from the same seller. But it's not guaranteed you wont have to pay.
has anyone got first hand experience of these ali express cards rather then just "ive seen it"...... as ive heard more times then not its not the card in the package.
as for the Ryzen 1200 comments, typical around £45/50 but if u offer £40. 38 u might be lucky....... perfect if u wanna take a chance atleast with CCL your warranty covered and for £7 extra over what u may or may not get is well worth it.
ive got a used RX560 knocking about the house in a box, cant remember brand, but if anyones interested i can do that posted for £60. ill get more info tomorrow about it when i get up to loft as i stored it away.

I appreciate your points. On the other hand, adding up PSU, motherboard, RAM, hard drive and pc case cost, the price difference would be minimal compared to performance gain and the ability to future proof. Of course when your budget is tight, these are not deal breaker; but if you could squeeze just a little bit more, I would highly recommend to do so.
